Which one of these would perform better in games such as Call of Duty Black Ops or Battlefield 3 or games in general?
GTX 550 Ti
GTX 650 Ti
or Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC version?

Also I've heard that Radeon is bad for playing games and I've also heard the opposite that radeon is the best and GeForce is bad
What are your opinions and which one of these would perform better? They are also all in about the same price range, just looking for best performance for about the same money. Thanks!

In the same price bracket, you will get about the same performance. Or, at least so close that it really does not matter.
The GTX650ti might be the strongest, with the 7770 next.

If you are targeting a specific game or two, look for some benchmark results for those games specifically. It can sometimes make a difference.

In general, most prefer the drivers from Nvidia, and the amd cards seem to be priced more agressively.

Don't anguish over minor details, you will get good value for your money from any of them.
